G Scale Buildings

How do you get into G scale buildings? Are they typically hand made? or do you buy kits? totally new here, i'm fairly handy but before i started making buildings out of scrap wood wanted some input from people who have done this sort of thing before.

thanks in advance.

Are you going to be outdoors? I made buildings out of scrap wood and vinyl siding I found at new home constructions sites. They lasted for several years but did deteriorate. Some guys used bird houses from Lowes and Home Depot. I'm not aware of any kits.

Look at my post below. Most of the buildings in my photos are Piko or Aristocraft. Heavy plastic.

Talk about sticker shock, those buildings are pricey.
